Good coverage of the Tunbridge Wells Borough Council elections in today's edition of the local newspaper, The Courier.
The editorial page reflects on one of the key issues which I have referred to in earlier posts: the lack of any mention of a bold or overarching vision for the town of Royal Tunbridge Wells and the accusation that the Tories are treading water to avoid upsetting what I consider to be unrepresentative voices - the Aspic Brigade.
There is a good two page spread on the election. No comment from the Liberal Democrats I note. The UKIP candidate in Rusthall gets a mention as do the Labour party contesting all seats for the first time in many a year. The Leader of the Council is confident but not complacent. There is an interesting piece on the Independent standing in Pembury.
Councillor Brian Ransley gets a mention in both the editorial and an article. He regards his chance of success as evens: personally I hope he gets hammered.
